A 1 vs 1 fight in the ghetto turns into an all out civil war when a mother and her daughters are corned by more than 60 people in front of their home. They’re forced to get weapons to defend themselves then all hell breaks loose when the Calvary arrives.

A ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, typically as a result of social, legal, or economic pressure. The term was originally used in Venice to describe the part of the city to which Jews were restricted and segregated but has since been applied in various contexts. The word “ghetto” comes from the Jewish area of Venice, the Venetian Ghetto in Cannaregio, traced to a special use of Venetian getto, or “foundry” (there was one near the site of that city’s ghetto in 1516); By 1899 the term had been extended to crowded urban quarters of other minority groups. The etymology of the word is uncertain, as there is no agreement among etymologists about the origins of the Venetian language term. Theories include that it comes from the above-mentioned Venetian ghèto (foundry); from Hebrew get (“bill of divorce”, “deed of separation”), from the Yiddish gehektes (enclosed), from Latin Giudaicetum, (Jewish), from the Italian borghetto (little town) “small section of a town” (diminutive of borgo, which is of Germanic origin; see borough), from the Old French guect (guard). Another possibility is a clipped form of Egitto (“Egypt”), from Latin Aegyptus (presumably in memory of exile).
In Northern Ireland, towns and cities have long been segregated along ethnic, religious and political lines. Northern Ireland’s two main communities are its Irish nationalist-republican community (who mainly self-identify as Irish or Catholic) and its unionist-loyalist community (who mainly self-identify as British or Protestant). Ghettos emerged in Belfast during the riots that accompanied the Irish War of Independence. For safety, people fled to areas where their community was the majority. They then sealed off these neighborhoods with barricades to keep out rioters or gunmen from the other side. Many more ghettos emerged after the 1969 riots and beginning of the “Troubles”. In August 1969 the British Army was deployed to restore order and separate the two sides. The government built barriers called “peace lines”. Many of the ghettos came under the control of paramilitaries such as the (republican) Provisional Irish Republican Army and the (loyalist) Ulster Defence Association. One of the most notable ghettos was Free Derry.
Southall Broadway, a predominantly Asian area in London, where less than 12 per cent of the population is white, has been cited as an example of a ‘ghetto’, but in reality the area is home to a number of different ethnic groups and religious groups.[verification needed] Analysis of data from Census 2001 revealed that only two wards in England and Wales, both in Birmingham, had one dominant non-white ethnic group comprising more than two-thirds of the local population, but there were 20 wards where whites were a minority making up less than a third of the local population.[need quotation to verify] By 2001, two London boroughs – Newham and Brent – had ‘minority majority’ populations, and most parts of the city tend to have a diverse population.
